I read up in "LATEX users guide and reference manual" (leslie Lamport) and "The LATEX companion" but could not get these (<--, --->, <---->, >, or <) arrow symbols in my dvi file. I also tried to do usepackage{asmsymbo} and latexsym but in vain. There is no error message which is okay, since these packages (sty files) are on my system. The books say that "<" and ">" should go without need of any special package but my dvi file shows "!" and "?" (both turned upside down). Furthermore, I tried and found that greek alphabets are also not visible. Maybe the problems are linked with each other. I think for greek alphabets normally no extra package is needed, or am I missing something? Can anyone help me with this, please. I need to submit my report tomorrow. thanks a lot ppl, Last edited by realos; 08-25-2003 at 06:04 PM.

These symbols are require to be used as in formulas. anyone of the followings work:$ formula \$ $$formula$$ \begin{math} formula \end{math} thanks player anyhow
